, which states congress shall make no respecting the establishment of a religion or prohibiting free exercise thereof. the supreme court in marsh v. chambers, 1983, upheld the constitutionality of legislative prayer. so i think it's pretty clear that our framers intended that there be a spiritual dimension to government and that the separation of church and state was referring to the establishment of a religion, of having an official state religion or governmental religion. and i don't think any, any lawmaker would want me to address any particular partisan issue. my position is non-partisan. every statement i have made in my intercession could apply to both sides of the aisle. i provide ministry in a political environment. so my prayers will reflect material related to government because that's what politics, that is what the political process is all about but it does not, it does not bring up my prayers. i deliberately avoid partisan issues of the i have never talked about immigration reform, i have never talked about same-sex marriage or pro-choice or pro-life or anything like tha

that, you know, religion is as diverse as christianity, islam and judaisjudaism. but if you are talking about the redefinition of marriage, as many here are today, which is you're right to love whoever you want to love, very few people disagree with somebody's right to love somebody. the question comes in: how do you write a law? how do you define that? do you say that any two people who love each other can be considered married? and then what do you say to the person who says, but we are three people and we love each other. why are you leaving us out of that equation? so these are where the questions get more complicated and harder to define and harder to write into law and make everybody feel good about it. >> that's why socies historicale referred to the con jugal definition of marriage. >> why marriage? why do you think that now more than ever, the republican party, members of the republican party are open to this idea of gay marria marriage? >> it's an issue that's evolved. barack obama only came out in favor of gay marriage a relatively short time ago. i think this gets at a long

for the works of religion which is kind of a bank that's set up to help coordinate charitable activities and currently the pope -- both pope francis and pope benedict had been working to kind of clean up some of the activity and put the vatican bank in a more rigorous footing. but it's a small bank in the scale of things. and so i don't really know what kind of threats they would imagine the holy sea would pose. >> it's very, very interesting i appreciate you giving us some insight. jimmy aken, senior apoll gist. >> the white house said in a statement that the discussion between the leaders will focus on the long-term relationship between iran and the relationship. that partnership is something the prime minister is extremely concerned about as the security and stability of the rock unravels. prime minister al-maliki made the message today while speaking at the united states institute of peace. >> there's one message iraq's prime minister has been pushing during his visit to washington, d.c. this week. help me fight terrorism in my country, a cause, maliki says will not only help iraq bu

this the craziest costume, it seemed more religion on you message than mass ka raid. on the back of the cross were words "pray for boston" referring to the bombing. as he approached the ten-mile mark, he ran into police, the officers confiscated his cross, and a short while later he showed up at the precinct to retrieve it. apparently no cross meant no point in crossing the finish line. the tracker embedded in the bib each runner wears, in this case attached to the cross, shows marathon jesus ending his run at the ten-mile, ma after 1:49 minutes. it was registered to a man from japan. marathon jesus doesn't seem to want to spread the word. he told us i am not the jesus guy. even former "baywatch" star pamela anderson beat out marathon jesus. pamela at least managed to finish the 26.2 mar athought in 5 hours and 41 minutes, then tweeted out this photo captioned "ouch." you want ouch? try walking ten miles on new york concrete in bare feet. jeanne moos, cnn. new york. >>> happening now, panic in the obama care war room. now proof of fears that people will be disappointed even after the website is fi

this is the majority religion in the country, 51% i think the last poll showed our catholic. but at the time john f. kennedy ran, not even his church was behind him. and this is why the kennedys have always said the cardinals and bishops are republicans and the nuns are democrat. but joe kennedy was the 10th richest man in america at that time, and he still knew that no matter how much money he had, they wouldn't have that ultimate respectability until they broke through and put an irish catholic in office. and he was determined that one of his sons would become that. there wasn't that drive and the bush family. prescott bush was a moderate republican senator. his son, george herbert walker bush wanted to be like his father, and so he pursued politics. and then george w. bush. >> host: in the family, you write for those who study the fault line, the campaign of 1980 is instructive. because to dynastic sons chose to challenge their party's front runners and those two presumptive heirs base their candidacies solely on their sense of entitlement. >> guest: i am fascinated, not just by the study of pow
